Chasan an advocate for public schools

We think he is the right choice for school board director.

We are endorsing Dan Chasan for school board position No. 1. He has been an advocate for public schools for 30-plus years and has worked hard to keep standards high at all three Vashon schools. He is acutely aware of the importance of being a good steward of our taxes, that the buildings and grounds are well maintained, that the budget is balanced and that the school funds are used wisely. He knows that a Vashon education is special thanks to the hard work and creativity of the teachers and staff at VISD.

We think he is the right choice for school board director, Position 1 and we hope that you do, too.
